Transportation Information

Please find information below to help with transportation planning for breaks and long weekends.

General Bus Information


  • When & Where: Millbrook School will run buses this year for Thanksgiving, Winter Break, Spring Break, and the end of the school year, directly to and from LaGuardia (LGA) and John. F. Kennedy (JFK) airports. All flights must be coordinated around the bus schedule if you choose to participate.

    Please note that busing is only available to the Wassaic Train Station for all other breaks, open weekends, and long weekends, including fall and spring parents weekends. Any airport travel that needs to be coordinated during one of these times must be coordinated personally. 

    Busing is also not available for opening days, and, therefore, students and their families are expected to coordinate their own travel to campus for the start of school. 

  • Cost: The cost of a bus ticket is $100 each way. Fees are non-refundable. All fees associated with busing are charged to the student's My Millbrook Spending account. 
  • How to Sign Up: If you would like to sign your child up for bus transportation services for a major school vacation, please fill out the appropriate form on the right side of this page. Please note that a separate form must be submitted for each student/sibling. 

Maggie Haas (mhaas@millbrook.org) will be in touch with all students signed up for the bus ahead of each trip. She will provide more specific information and instructions at that time.
